Sometimes an accident happens because of things that are beyond the car in front of you. If you have tunnel vision from focusing on just what’s in front of you, you could miss signs of an accident. Such a miss may have claimed the life of a motorcyclist in Union Parish, Louisiana. Magnolia Reporter talked about the accident.

It is unknown why the motorcyclist fell over, but police do know the brakes were engaged for a short distance before the bike fell over. One possible explanation is that the motorcyclist was following too close to the Mustang and didn’t notice the braking in time. However, this is just speculation without more information from the police.
The driver of the Mustang was unhurt in the collision.
